There are many people who relate money with evilness. They say that abundance of money makes you evil and it certainly can’t buy happiness. In this article I will be discussing about the importance of money, Can it buy happiness, its effects on your mind, and why it should not be considered evil.
Before digging deeper, we must think a bit about human requirements. These can be classified into two major categories. They are either emotional or physical in nature. Money can help you in fulfilling both (most of them, but not all). Be it the car, holiday package, clothes, food, toilet paper, electricity, and millions of other things; they are available in exchange for money.
The concept of completeness states that an individual lives many roles simultaneously. You are a son, brother, boss, employee, friend, enemy, preacher, follower, and much more at the same time. The number and types of role vary from individual to individual.
The requirement of money to support particular role will also vary. This simply means that you will need money and without it the life will be incomplete.
Effect of Money on Mind and Attitude:
It will be interesting to share the outcome a research that was conducted on players of monopoly (व्यापार). This is a board-game where people compete to win the blocks with virtual-fake-currency. The interesting observations were:
- The people who were ahead in the game showed a change in attitude. They ate more from the plate placed on the table.
- Their body language became more dominating.
- They showed less concern about the feeling of the person who was loosing the game.
This is true. Just think that in this situation no actual money was involved, you can only imagine about the case with real money.
* This happens with most of the people, but still there are few who have an unshakable good heart. Are you?
Can you buy Happiness with Money?
There is much mambo-jumbo regarding this. The overall conclusion is that there are few objects with a price and others are priceless (Especially, the emotional ones).
It’s not bad till you earn money for some purpose. The problem arises when “Earning Money” becomes your purpose.
Many important research states that the amount of happiness might or might not change on spending money on yourself, but it will rise for sure when you happily spend it on others.
Now, is the time for opinion of the expert. Chanakya says that:
Money earned must kept circulating and put to some good use. Just like the water of a pond having inflow and outflow systems is clean. On the other hand waterlogged ponds collect dirt in them.
Money plays a very significant role in human life. On having money the person is given respect, considered wise, and preferred by women.
One must be satisfied with whatever he has as wife, wealth, and income. Anyhow, one must never get satisfied with the knowledge and act of charity.
Today! I leave the conclusion on your discretion.
